Similarly, he jokes that I've taken to our 3d modeling & analysis software like it's a video game, and I tell him, "well, I've played and modified a lot of video games in my day." Got to love turning the conventional wisdom on its head, ("video games are a waste of time", etc.)

Sometimes I worry he's going to think I've missed my calling as a race car engineer or something.
Guys like you and your boss define why I want to be an engineer myself!
